100% Pinot Noir rosé from Cornwall.

Beautiful pale salmon colour in the glass with a slight orange tinge. Alluring summer berry mix on the nose; freshly picked strawberries and raspberries. Slight hints of spice and dried herb.

Really well-judged palate. It’s a dry crisp style rose with medium acidity, but very clear expression of fruit. Lovely clean crisp red apples with fuller strawberry and raspberry flavours. There’s a pleasant creaminess to the mouthfeel, almost mineral and spice mid taste with good length. A slight black fruit aftertaste further adds to the layers of flavour.

I’ve really enjoyed this rose, I would say it’s my favourite rosé of the year so far and perhaps the best English rosé I’ve tried to date.

Winemakers Description:

A light rosé with intense strawberry aromas.  This rosé has been made dry and goes beautifully with barbecued mackerel, and is perfect for sipping al fresco, a real hammock wine!  Made from 100% Pinot Noir.

We’ve won the Waitrose Rosé Trophy more often than any other producer and won the inaugural Times/Waitrose Small Producer of the Year Trophy in 2003.
